    That's just the way it works: outbound connections will use the main IP. There is no way you can force the mail server to use a different source IP dependent on the sending domain. What practical problem is this causing you?

    System is designed to use the server's main IP for all outgoing mail, regardless of whether an account has a dedicated IP. Lots of threads on this depending on your objectives. Search the forums using the words: mail dedicated ip or mail change ip
